Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside

not sure if yo are changing the jets out but if your using the original screws and jets screw both screws in till they stop then turn 1 and a half turns out they try starting if it kicks and won't run then turn each screw another 1/2 turn out try starting if it runs rough adjust the gas jet a little bit till it runs smooth once it warms up give it full gas and you should get just a slight puff of black smoke to be set right, if it's too lean it will get hot and will be hard to start if it dies, if that happens then give it extra gas. once warmed up it should idle without dyeing if it dies adjust the idle screw up 1/4 turn at a time till it runs at idle without holding the gas trigger, be sure you replace the in line fuel filter and fuel line first then clean the air filter before doing any adjustments. most problems are caused by plugged fuel filter due to ethanol in the gas.

Believe it or not, I've had a lot of luck with local Goodwill outlets as a source for spare parts. You see a lot of what gets dropped off isn't exactly in tip-top condition and not resellable as-is.
I ask to see what they have and sometimes make an offer. They usually accept.
It turns out to be a win-win and there's nothing wrong with that.
Best of luck

We have several choices to choose from here in the U.S., but I presume that you are probably in Austraila. I would like to be of more help. If you would want to get one from here, the shipping charges would be ridiculous. Post back if needed.

Hi, W/D here.
There should be a switch at the front of the machine that you can depress to break the power and shut the machine down. Most of these type switches will go to off only as long as you hold the switch down, then return to the run position when you let off of it. Take a closer look, and you should see it.
Best regards, --W/D--
